And there's more...

This is one of my favourite LO's at the moment, I loved doing it and the paper was so apt! It's Creative World Drop Dead Red and I got it off Beverley over at CTYD. There was a skull on it which I didn't like much so I covered it with more of those fabulous gathered flowers I did over at MCC. They look great as well if you cut into them after you have sewn them, like petals! My Boy isn't dangerous at all, unless he's hanging off your finger! LOL! But I love him to bits and he is truly beautiful!

This one is my Mojo! We all talk about our mojo's but have you ever tried to imagine what yours would look like in a physical form? Well, on one of sleepless nights I did and this is my mojo!!
I used Renae's House Aubrey papers that I got from CTYD!!! I even posed him for the picture sat on the Aubrey Garden paper!
My journalling reads;
"OK, So why on earth do I have a picture of a blue, fluffy thing in my treasured scrapbook? It's my mojo! Or at least what I picture my mojo to look like in physical form!! My mojo is my inspiration, creativity and motivation to make my pages as good as I can. My inspiration comes from patterned papers, magazines, gallerys, sketches and my imagination. My creativity is (I hope) natural but this is how I choose to use it and my motivation comes because this is what I love to do. So I love my mojo and it's cute representation, it even makes funny noises, like me trying to use a stubborn paper punch!!"

And then there's this one! I can't believe I finally scrapped it but I am so glad I did, it's the pic of me after our car accident back in November. I wanted to remind myself how lucky we were and to laugh at probably my worst self portrait, I never realised how wonky my nostrils were! LOL! Looking good (NOT)!
